Twinsie Tuesday: Blobicure - Cool Colors in Strips


The Twinsies are back with blobicures! 

What in the world is a blobicure? Well my friend, it is only the easiest nail art technique ever! It is basically the step before marbling a drag marble. Put down a thick coat of polish and immediately, while it is still wet, dot on small dots of another color and let them spread a little on the wet base color. Bam! Instant nail art!

Mommy's Mani Monday: One-Year Anniversary - Redo Your First MMM

First off - WOW! I can't believe it has already been an entire year since I took the plunge and decided to start Mommy's Mani Monday! 

In such a short amount of time, we've become a nice little nail group, with a wide variety of talented, wonderful moms and I love it! Some have been with me for the entire journey and put up with the bumps at the beginning, others are fairly new to MMM. But it always amazes me what these lovelies can come up with for the prompts!

Recycle Mani Monday: Seaside Decals

For another #RecycleManiMonday, I added decals to yesterday's mani, and put this seaside fun on my nails!

The Digit-al Dozen does Fandom: Day 1 - Negative Space Triangles


Barely squeaking in before midnight, I have my first Digit-al Dozen Fandom mani for the week!

I'm really not a huge fan of TV shows or books, and things like that. I love nail art and polish, but I don't read, and rarely watch any shows. So I cheated this week, and since I am such a fan of nails, I recreated cute manis from others! Today, I used this mani as my inspiration.

Recycled Mani Monday - Holographic Ice Cream Cone Mani

One of the nail artists I subscribe to on YouTube and Instagram, Maags Dinwiddie, has a playlist of manis she has recycled, and is inviting others to join her on her #RecycleManiMonday journey. 

Since I loved the ice cream nails I did for my nail artist feature of the month at The Little Canvas yesterday, I decided to slap some holo topcoat over these and wear them a little longer! I used my favorite holo topcoat from Anonymous Lacquer called Magik!

Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by a Song


For this week's Twinsie Tuesday, I actually just really wanted to try out some Essie nail strips I'd picked up for $1 at Dollar Tree (don't waste your money, they're crap, they're not even worth the $1) so I picked this song to serve as my inspiration!

Mommy's Mani Monday: Polish Roulette - Floral Water Marble

For Mommy's Mani Monday this week, we played Polish Roulette! If you don't know what that means, the prompt was to blindly grab two or more polishes and make them work together even if they didn't work together.

My polishes ended up being Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet, Wet'n'Wild Mallrat and Grape Minds Think Alike, and L.A. Colors Gel polish in Stunner. I figured the best way to force any polishes work together would be a water marble!
